  1. Indeed, no way are Lady Fairfax & Kerr several times richer than Bill Gates or Warren Buffet.

    Billion: it’s an amount impossible to grasp. I remember when a billion was defined as one million times a million. Sometime during the past thirty years it was sorely devalued.

  2. Thanks for pointing that error out guys. Bottom two should say million instead of billion. Hopefully doesn’t take away from the purpose of the graphic

Is our rage confined to a typo rather than the disgrace that extreme capitalism allows Rinehart, Lowy and co. to accumulate more than they could spend in a thousand lifetimes while thousands of others will never have enough for the only life they’ll ever have?
